Considering the future of my children, I did not retaliate and kept on being tortured. But two months ago, he escaped with the kids to an unknown place. I even approached the police but my application was not entertained. Then I contacted the police to rescue my kids suspecting that my husband has taken them away, but nothing has been done till date.Rosy Begum
